S’pore’s “liveability” has improved since 2009

In Uncategorized on 08/03/2015 at 4:05 am

Don’t let the anti-PAP cyber warriors BS you into thinking that living conditions are getting worse.

Click here and look at the chart:  The index crunches 30 factors related to things like safety, healthcare, educational resources, infrastructure and environment in 140 cities. Over the past five years urban life has deteriorated somewhat: liveability has declined in 51 places and improved in 31 places.

We are among the 31 places that have improved. But we are still not in top 10. We are the fourth most liveable city in Asia after Osaka, Tokyo and Hong Kong in the latest such ranking by The Economist magazine.

We came in 52nd out of 140 cities in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) latest Liveability Ranking. Hong Kong was ranked 31st.

  1. WHAT CHART?

    BS?

  2. Must be daft to rely on chart instead of one’s own senses and daily experience.

  3. At what price?

    It’s already the most expensive and we will really be screwed if livability deteriorated while costs go up. Fares go up while breakdowns become more frequent – it is great when you can live with that with a COE.
